Susan Weinstein joins Stars of PR to discuss the stunning new serial The Anarchist’s Girlfriend. The ideas are as fresh as Occupy Wall Street, but the book was originally written in the 1970s—dealing with art, politics, mystics and megalomaniacs. It is delightfully retro and powerfully prescient at the same time. In “The Anarchist’s Girlfriend”, Dostoyevsky’s divine “Idiot” is reimagined as a Brooklyn Go-Go Girl, who’s psychic and makes clothes of the future. She lives with the Anarchist, who silkscreens posters for his organization, Food for Vendettas, and Sandy, a video-veritie artist/nihilist. The story is told through the compassionate yet worldly eyes of Wayne, a deaf mute journalist for the cultish “News World.”
